Description

The vulnerability described in this article was initially fixed in earlier versions, but a regression was reintroduced in BIG-IP 12.x through13.x. For information about earlier versions, refer toK4583: Insufficient validation of ICMP error messages - VU#222750 / CVE-2004-0790(9.x - 10.x).

Multiple TCP/IP and ICMP implementations allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (reset TCP connections) via spoofed ICMP error messages, aka the 'blind connection-reset attack.' NOTE: CVE-2004-0790, CVE-2004-0791, and CVE-2004-1060 have been SPLIT based on different attacks; CVE-2005-0065, CVE-2005-0066, CVE-2005-0067, and CVE-2005-0068 are related identifiers that are SPLIT based on the underlying vulnerability. While CVE normally SPLITs based on vulnerability, the attack-based identifiers exist due to the variety and number of affected implementations and solutions that address the attacks instead of the underlying vulnerabilities. (CVE-2004-0790)
